    Nigeria Ranks Fourth On World Bank Debtors’ List

    Nigeria has moved to the fourth position on the World Bank debtors’ list with $13bn IDA debt stock as of June 30, 2022.Rising debt has pushed Nigeria up the World Bank’s top 10 International Development Association borrowers’ list.The World Bank Fiscal Year 2021 audited financial statements, known as the IDA financial statement, showed that Nigeria was rated fifth on the list with $11.7bn IDA debt stock as of June 30, 2021.However, the newly released World Bank Fiscal Year 2022 audited financial statements for IDA showed that Nigeria has moved to the fourth position on the list, with $13bn IDA debt stock as of June 30, 2022.

    The report shows that Nigeria accumulated about $1.3bn IDA debt within a fiscal year, with the country taking over the fourth top debtor position from Vietnam.This debt is different from the outstanding loan of $486m from World Bank’s International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

    The top five countries on the list slightly reduced their IDA debt stock except Nigeria.

    India, which is still the first on the list reduced its IDA debt stock from $22bn in the previous fiscal year to $19.7bn, followed by Bangladesh from $18.1bn to $18bn.It is followed by Pakistan which cut its debt from $16.4bn to $15.8bn, and lastly, Vietnam, which went down the list to fifth position, from $14.1bn to $12.9bn.Nigeria has the highest IDA debt in Africa, as the top three IDA borrowers (India, Bangladesh and Pakistan) are from Asia. The World Bank disclosed recently that Nigeria’s debt, which may be considered sustainable for now, is vulnerable and costly.The bank said, “Nigeria’s debt remains sustainable, albeit vulnerable and costly, especially due to large and growing financing from the Central Bank of Nigeria.

    ”However, the Washington-based global financial institution added that the country’s debt was also at risk of becoming unsustainable in the event of macro-fiscal shocks.The bank further expressed concerns over the nation’s cost of debt servicing, which according to it, disrupted public investments and critical service delivery spending.Economists have also raised concerns over the rising debt profile of the Federal Government.The Fiscal Policy Partner and Africa Tax Leader of PwC, Mr Taiwo Oyedele, expressed his agreement with the World Bank on the high cost of debt servicing.He said, “I agree with the World Bank.

    Although the debt to GDP ratio is not too high, if you think about the debt service cost to revenue ratio, it is already over 70 per cent. That’s when you know it’s costly.“Nigeria borrows at double-digit, and even when we borrow in dollars, the rates are very high and then you devalue the naira and the cost of servicing the debt in naira goes up because it is dollar-dominated debt.“Put all of that together, and you can easily say to yourself that even though our debt to GDP ratio is very low, our cost of borrowing is unsustainable because it is very high, and therefore, make it very costly.

    ”A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and former presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, also criticised the increasing borrowing tendency of the government, urging the officials to re-consider other ways of generating revenue for the country.Moghalu noted that it was also not reasonable to borrow for infrastructural development as the government could expand the public-private partnership options for such development.

    The Director General of the Debt Management Office, Patience Oniha, in a document recently released stated that high debt levels would often lead to high debt services and affect investments in infrastructure.

    Oniha said, “High debt levels lead to heavy debt service which reduces resources available for investment in infrastructure and key sectors of the economy.”

    Peter Obi Will Be Impeached If He Wins – Reno Omokri

    Former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has alleged that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, would be impeached if he eventually wins the 2023 election.Omokri disclosed this in a statement on his Facebook handle, adding that Obi would not last if he does not have senators from his party in the senate.

    He urged Nigerians to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.The best-selling author stated that Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed were products of PDP and were Atikulating in 2019.

    He claimed that the duo would return back to PDP.His words: “Both Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed are PDP products. Both of them were Atikulating in 2019. PDP is their natural home. They are just on sabbatical. After sowing their wild oats in Labour, they shall return, and we will welcome them. Even if you are Obidiently Yusful, still be Atikulate and vote Atiku!“We love Obidients in PDP.

    You are like our grandchildren. We gave birth to Peter Obi and Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, and they gave birth to you. A stream cannot deny its source. You guys are the stream, and we are the river that feeds you.

    “In fact, Obidients should vote for Atiku, because even if they vote for Peter Obi and he becomes President, which is very unlikely to happen, he won’t last on that seat without having Senators in the Senate. He could be impeached within days of being sworn in.”


  • Economists Blast FG As Debt Servicing To Hit N10.43tn

    According to the 2023-2035 Medium Term Expenditure Framework & Fiscal Strategy Paper, the Federal Government has projected that debt servicing will cost N10.43tn by 2025.This is a 182.66 per cent increase from the N3.69tn budgeted for debt service in 2022.Recall that multilateral agencies and economists have constantly warned the Federal Government about the rising cost of debt service, which can trigger a crisis for the country.

    However, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Dr Zainab Ahmed, and the Director General of the Debt Management Office, Patience Oniha, have insisted that the country does not have a debt problem but a revenue challenge.

    In a document by the DMO DG recently obtained by our correspondent, the DMO stated that high debt levels would often lead to high debt services and affect investments in infrastructure.According to the DMO DG, “High debt levels lead to heavy debt service which reduces resources available for investment in infrastructure and key sectors of the economy.”In the document, she stressed the need for debt sustainability, which she defined as the ability to service all current and future obligations, while maintaining the capacity to finance policy objectives without resort to unduly large adjustments or exceptional financing such as arrears accumulation, debt restructuring, which could otherwise compromise the economy’s stability

    Speaking at the launch of the World Bank’s Nigeria Development Update titled, ‘The urgency for business unusual,’ held recently in Abuja, the finance minister had admitted that Nigeria was struggling to service its debt.She said, “Already, we are struggling with being able to service debt because even though revenue is increasing, the expenditure has been increasing at a much higher rate, so it is a very difficult situation.

    ”The International Monetary Fund had earlier warned that debt servicing might gulp 100 per cent of the Federal Government’s revenue by 2026 if the government failed to implement adequate measures to improve revenue generation.According to the IMF’s Resident Representative for Nigeria, Ari Aisen, based on a macro-fiscal stress test that was conducted on Nigeria, interest payments on debts might wipe up the country’s entire earnings in the next four years.Aisen said, “The biggest critical aspect for Nigeria is that we have done a macro-fiscal stress test, and what you observe is the interest payments as a share of revenue, and as you see us in terms of the baseline from the federal government of Nigeria, the revenue of almost 100 per cent is projected by 2026 to be taken by debt service.“So, the fiscal space or the amount of revenues that will be needed and this, without considering any shock, is that most of the revenues of the Federal Government are now, in fact, 89 per cent and it will continue if nothing is done to be taken by debt service.”

    Less than two months after Aisen’s warning, the finance minister disclosed that Nigeria’s debt service cost surpassed its revenue in the first four months of this year.Debt service gulped N1.94tn between January and April 2022, as against a retained revenue of N1.63tn.

    According to a recent PUNCH report, the Federal Government exceeded its debt service allocation by N1.15tn for the period between January and November 2021.A copy of the public presentation of the 2022 approved budget by the finance minister showed that the Federal Government allocated N3.32tn for debt servicing in 2021.However, the minister’s presentation document showed that a total of N4.2tn was spent on debt servicing in 11 months, indicating a difference of N1.15tn or 37.9 per cent of the money allocated for debt servicing for the period.

    The PUNCH also reported that Nigeria’s debt servicing bill increased by 109 per cent, from N429bn in December 2021 to N896bn in March 2022.A report by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group and the Open Society Initiative for West Africa has disclosed that Nigeria and 10 other Economic Community of West African States countries are currently in debt distress based on debt sustainability analysis.The 10 other countries are: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, the Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Niger, Senegal, and Togo.It was further disclosed in the report that public debt accumulation for these countries was becoming unsustainable and needed to be addressed to avert the looming debt crisis.

    The report warned that the possibility of a debt crisis in Nigeria would adversely affect public and private investments, as well as other sectors of the country.The World Bank recently said that Nigeria’s debt, which might be considered sustainable for now, was vulnerable and costly.According to the Washington-based global financial institution, the country’s debt was also at risk of becoming unsustainable in the event of macro-fiscal shocks.Experts have kicked against the Federal Government’s proclivity for debt, which they have described as unsustainable.The Chief Executive Officer of Centre for the Promotion of Private Enterprise, Dr Muda Yusuf, said that the Nigerian economy had been characterised by diverse economic vulnerabilities, which included rising public debt and debt service burden.

    He said, “Debt service to revenue ratio for the first four months of the current year is over 100 per cent. The implication of this is that the actual revenue of the government over the period is not sufficient to service debt. Therefore, financing of the operations of government – personnel cost, overhead cost, capital expenditure, and even part of the servicing of the debt – will have to come from additional borrowing. These portend severe vulnerabilities for the Nigerian economy.”

  • BBNaija : Checkout The Reason Why Beauty Was Disqualified

    Big Brother Naija Level Up Housemate, Beauty Tukura, commonly known as Beauty has been disqualified from the reality show. The housemate was issued double strikes by Big Brother on Sunday and thereby disqualified from the show.

    Reason why Beauty was disqualified ;

    According to Big Brother, the housemate flouted some house rules during her confrontation with her fellow housemate, Groovy after their Saturday Night party.

    Big Brother disclosed that Beauty flung her transmitter while she was challenging Groovy for dancing with Level 1 housemate, Chomzy and she also engaged in violent act as she threw her wig and shade at Groovy.

    Beauty was shocked.

    According to the rules of the reality show, three strikes automatically lead to disqualification from the show. Ergo, owing to the fact that Beauty had already been issued a strike by Big Brother last week, she was automatically disqualified after receiving double strikes today.

    What transpired between Beauty and Groovy during last night party ;

    Towards the end of the party last night, Beauty dragged Groovy out of the party room as she accused him of breaking their agreement by dancing with a Level One housemate, Chomzy. She said she had given him the permission to dance with any female housemates with the exception of Chomzy but he did not kept to their agreement.

    It would be recalled that Beauty had taken offence last week after she saw Groovy with Chomzy. She accused him of having a conversation with her but Groovy denied and said they were only dancing together. The duo later agreed that Groovy is allowed to dance with every other person except Chomzy. When last night party was almost over, Beauty saw Chomzy’s hands around Groovy’s neck. She approached him and dragged him out of the party room. She confronted him of flirting with Chomzy.

    Groovy tried to explain to her that he had been avoiding the lady but she kept coming to him.

    Groovy further explained that he did not dance with Chomzy but Beauty refused to believe him. She got pissed and threw her wig and shades at him while he was trying to explain himself. When her fellow housemates tried make her calm, she angrily removed her transmitter and microphone. Big Brother said she broke two house rules with her actions last night. Hence, she was thereby disqualified from the reality show.

  • Another #EndSARS May Mark The End Of Nigerian Police – AIG

    The police has admonished its men to be more, forthright, professional and civil in their engagement with members of the public to avoid a repeat of nationwide protests such as #EndSARS.The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2 (Lagos and Ogun States), Adeleke Adeyinka, issued the admonition, on Wednesday.

    Addressing men of the Ogun State Police command during his visit to the command in Abeokuta, the state capital, Adeyinka said another #EndSARS protest may portend serious danger to the Nigeria police.The nationwide #EndSARS protest led to the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit of the Nigeria Police, over its record of abuse and extra judicial killings of Nigerians.

    said, “another EndSARS may lead to the end of the police.“The criminals that perpetrated that act that time are going to come out more experienced. The mistakes they made then, they are not going to make them now and that is why your conduct towards the members of the public must be effective.”He lamented the high rate of cultism among police officers and warned them against misconduct and other acts that may trigger civil unrest.

    triggering panic in…Adeleke also charged the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, to fish out officers involved in cultism and cybercrime, who according to him, are giving the police a bad name.“If you (police officer) are a cultist I don’t think you should show it to people because it is wrong and do you know why it is wrong even if you are not wicked, if you belong to a cult group there is no way you are not going to favour a member of your cult, unless you are not a good cult member.“A situation where a police officer is a member of a cult group and people in the society know that he is a cultist, his activities are related to cultism, I think it is sad.“

    There are some of our policemen too now that are into cybercrime, popularly know as yahoo yahoo, especially policemen who find themselves in places where we have institutions of higher learning, it is very common. You (commissioner) need to fish them out and you need to preach to them,” Adeleke said.

    War: You’re Causing More Trouble, Ukraine Can’t Win Against Russia – Hungary Warns NATO

    According to Hungary, the current NATO strategy means that Ukraine “cannot win” the war with Russia.Viktor Orban, the prime minister of Hungary, voiced his opinion during a press conference in Vienna, Austria.

    Orban cautioned journalists about the dire consequences for the European economy while stating that Ukraine cannot defeat Russia.

    “This war in this form cannot be won,” Orban said, speaking alongside Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer in Vienna, CNN reports.He said that NATO countries’ strategy of supporting Ukraine with weapons and training “has shown until now that it will not lead to success.”

    “Without changing the strategy, there is not going to be peace,” he said, warning that, without peace in Ukraine, all of the European Union will “be pushed into a war situation.”

    “It is not clear how we can avoid recession in the EU if the war carries on,” Orban added.


  • We’ll Ease Difficult Conditions Under Which Judges Work – Buhari

    President Muhammadu Buhari says the degenerate welfare and working conditions of the nation’s judiciary, are serious and will be treated as such.He said this would be done despite the dire state of the country’s economy “currently battling insecurity, corruption and economic challenges,” aggravated by the COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.Buhari stated this when he hosted the chairman and representatives of the Body of Benchers, a body of legal practitioners of “the highest distinction in the legal profession” in the State House, Abuja, on Thursday.

    According to the president, a democratic government like the one he leads, “standing on a tripod comprising the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, cannot stand where one of its three pillars, the Judiciary is not properly nurtured, maintained and sustained to deliver on its very pivotal constitutional duties.”He, therefore, promised to act quickly on the report of the committee he set up on his own back in 2018 to review the welfare and working conditions of the judiciary.“

    Let me assure you that the issues would be given due and urgent attention within the resources available to government,” he said.

    The President congratulates the Body of Benchers on the successful completion of the “Benchers’ complex at Jabi,” a building described as impressive that would house the body and provide conference facilities and accepted their invitation to personally commission the structure.In his presentation, the chairman of the Body of Benchers, Wale Olanipekun, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, described the condition under which judges, especially the Justices of the Supreme Court work as pathetic, appalling and below the minimum standards that are required:He said: “We want to plead with you. We need to bail out the Judiciary.

    The situation is bad. Let us sympathise with the Judiciary. I know you to have respect, feelings for the Judiciary.“You have sympathy, empathy and consideration.

    The Body of Benchers as elders of the legal profession makes these recommendations to Your Excellency, with a plea that they should be attended to urgently.”In his introductory remarks, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, made a case for collaboration of the Executive and the Judicial arms, to “open the books to enable both sides see the depth of the decay and know how far to go in putting in place the necessary remedial measures.”


  • Gunmen injure 2 as they attack construction site in OWO, Ondo State

    Two security men of a construction firm were injured on Wednesday when gunmen attacked the company’s construction site in Owo, Ondo State.

    Chief Adetunji Adeleye, Ondo State Commander of Amotekun Corps (the sub-regional security outfit in the southwest) confirmed the attack on Thursday.

    He stated that the gunmen shot sporadically into the air and damaged the windshields of two earthmovers at the site.

    “I have just left the scene and I realised that the two security men were injured as the attackers shot into the air.

    “They damaged the windshields of two earthmovers of the construction company. The injured men have been taken to a hospital,’’ he stated.

    Adeleye, also the Special Adviser to Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu on Security Matters, added that normalcy had since returned to the area.Police in Ondo State also confirmed the attack on their verified Twitter handle.

    “There was a shooting at a construction site in Owo on Wednesday night.“Policemen are currently at the scene; victims have been taken to hospital and they are in stable condition,’’ the police stated.


  • Buhari Frowns At Impeachment Threats By Opposition Senators

    The Presidency has frowned at the threats by some opposition members of the Senate to begin impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari over nation’s security challenges.Some Senators from opposition political parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) were reported to have expressed frustration over the nation’s security problems, giving the president a six-week deadline to address the issue or face impeachment proceedings

    However, Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s spokesman, in a statement on Wednesday night described the impeachment attempt as ridiculous.

    The statement read in part: ”The performative and babyish antics of those senators staging a walk out notwithstanding, Senate President Ahmad Lawan’s refusal on Wednesday to entertain the ridiculous motion to impeach our President was quite appropriate and correct.”Rather than making a mockery out of voters by trying to imitate what they see in America, the opposition would be well advised that their time would be better spent tackling the pressing issues Nigerians face, such as the current global cost of living crisis.

    ”Their continued failure to do so goes some way to explaining why they remain in opposition.”In contrast, the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is committed to finding lasting solutions to the emerging security threats, including those left behind by the PDP in the South-South, the Northeast and throughout the federation.”In the last 24 hours, two more Chibok girls were freed, in addition to the three brought home last week.”These kinds of headline grabbing stunts for which the opposition is now well known serve no one, least of all their constituents.”We would respectfully remind them that it is those same constituents that they were elected to serve, and are paid to do so with public money.

    ”The presidential aide, however, expressed the readiness of the All Progressives Congress led administration to partner with all well-meaning citizens including members of the opposition to address the security challenges across the country.He said: ”We would welcome their collaboration in our efforts to solve the problems Nigerians face on a daily basis. No one is asking them to waste their time attempting to impeach a democratically elected President at the end of his second term – certainly not their constituents.

    ”They should ask themselves: do they want to be in government or do they want to be in the headlines? If they want to be in government they should start acting like it and stop undermining Nigerian voters.”

    Matthew had attracted sympathies and attention after alleging that her child went missing at the Christ MercyLand Church in Warri, adding that the owner of the church, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin had a hand in the matter.

    While the case was investigated by the Nigerian Police and currently in court, a video made available to journalists yesterday showed Ruth Matthew confessing that she sold her baby and seeking for forgiveness.

    While her children were also been interrogated and cross examined in the video, the claims about the prophet being involved in the matter were denied in the presence of her younger brother Mr Joshua Matthew.

    Earlier, a man, identified as Alfred Ayo, had appealed to the Federal Government to intervene in the case of his missing child, stating in a video posted on his Facebook page that Ruth Matthew, his wife and her lover connived to hide his child for the purpose of seeking undue favour.

    Recall that the founder of Abuja based Human Right Radio, popularly referred to as Brekete family, Ordinary Ahmed Isa, who was at some point investigating the story slammed Ruth and her supporters over the case of the alleged missing child.

    Isa, while speaking during a live programme on the radio station had said he won’t be used in pulling down anyone, stressing that the station would not be involved in cases that have iota of lies.

    Reacting to the case Isa said the woman who brought up the case could not substantiate her claims and was also looking for ways to use the opportunity to move abroad.

    While some people had accused the station of being bribed into dropping the case, Isa said most of the people accusing the station were only looking for cheap publicity and would have rather continued the case if they are able to substantiate it.The development, which came up about three years, resurfaced recently as some pastors and NGO stood up to seek justice. The development had led the church to file a suite in court over the issue, stating that there was need to put final stop to the matter.


  • FG Must Address Insecurity Before 2023, Says Anglican Bishop

    Stephen Fagbemi, the Bishop of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Owo Diocese has called on the Federal Government to address the issue of security challenges and other issues threatening the existence of the country before the 2023 general elections.

    The cleric also cautioned that failure to resolve the issues may not augur well for the country.Fagbemi gave the warning while reading the Bishop’s Charge at the first session of the 14th Synod of Diocese of Owo Anglican Communion, held at the St. Paul’s Church, Ifon, headquarters of the Ose Local Government.

    The synod was themed “Chosen to proclaim”.According to him, Nigeria has found itself in a most unfortunate state, to the extent that some were beginning to suggest that it is becoming a failed state as a result of the inability of the government to address the country’s problems.He called on churches and individuals to commence a process of self-defense mechanism in the face of the present security threat to the country, adding that if urgent action is not taken by the government, the country may explode.

    He said, “What we heard from those who have been released from kidnappers’ den is that a particular ethnic group of this country is responsible and they have a plan to take over every part of the country. We have heard this line of claim several times. A responsible government ought to have investigated this by now and come up with a clear strategy for dealing with this trend.”On the forthcoming general elections, the cleric said Nigerians need leaders with the necessary aptitude and courage to lead the country out of its quagmire.

    He also noted that until the country recognises the rights of every Nigerian to practice the faith of their choice without any intimidation and discrimination, peace, progress and justice will continue to elude the country.“Going for the 2023 elections without defining these issues and many others that threaten our collective existence is to defer the evil day. I appeal to all civil, religious, and political leaders of this country to abandon all selfish interests and deal with these urgent national issues,” he charged.

    US president : Joe Biden Tests Negative For COVID, Ends Isolation

    President Biden tested negative for COVID-19 twice and will end his isolation at the White House Wednesday, physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor said.

    Mr. Biden’s two negative tests — the first on Tuesday evening and the second Wednesday morning — come after tested positive for COVID-19 last week and began a course of Paxlovid, an antiviral drug. O’Connor said in a letter released by the White House that the president completed his five-day course of the treatment 36 hours ago and completed five full days of isolation as of Wednesday morning.

    “Back to the Oval. Thanks to Doc for the good care, and to all of you for your support,” Mr. Biden tweeted, with a photo of his negative at-home test.Mr. Biden continues to be fever-free and he has stopped taking Tylenol, the White House doctor said. While he is ending his isolation, the president will continue to wear a mask for 10 full days when he is around other people.“His symptoms have been steadily improving, and are almost completely resolved,” O’Connor continued.After testing positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, the president remained in the residence of the White House. While he participated in a variety of meetings virtually, Mr. Biden has not been seen in public since his diagnosis.

    That will change Wednesday, when he delivers remarks at 11:30 a.m. from the Rose Garden at the White House. A White House official said the topic of his remarks will be COVID-19.

    “The president will give remarks after his negative test about a case that was mild, thanks to the tools this administration has worked hard to make available to the American people,” the official said.

    “He will discuss the progress we have made against COVID and encourage eligible Americans to get vaccinated and boosted.”It’s unclear whether the president will follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance to avoid travel for 10 days after a positive test.

    The health agency’s guidance advises those who have tested positive to “not travel until a full 10 days after your symptoms started or the date your positive test was taken if you had no symptoms.” The president had to postpone travel plans when he tested positive last week.On Tuesday, Mr. Biden was feeling well enough to continue his exercise regimen, O’Connor said.The president is scheduled to speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday, a source familiar with the call tells CBS News.

    Two housemates of the Big Brother Naija ‘Level up’ edition, Amaka and Phyna, got into an altercation on early hours of Tuesday morning.The duo tore each other apart with harsh words. While the majority of the season 7 ‘first house’ were sleeping, Amaka and Phyna were first seen having what seemed a decent conversation before they suddenly began to shout at each other.

    According to Phyna, Amaka

    “sounded like someone who wants to play mind-game with everybody.”

    Phyna claimed Amaka was persistently talking about the other house where the other 12 housemates are kept during their conversation, saying she would get into the strongest there to get what is in their head.

    Furious by Amaka’s “mindgame”, Phyna wondered what she (Amaka) intends to do with getting to know what is in the mind of fellow housemates.This resulted in a fight between the housemates who have been friends since entering the Level Up house. Phyna could be heard calling Amaka names such as “A big idiot”, “manipulative” and “senseless.”Amaka on her own feels that Phyna thinks she knows too much about social media followers.

    Former Big Brother Naija housemate Ike Onyema has threatened to expose his former girlfriend, Mercy Eke if she continues to say terrible things about him.

    The reality TV star made this known while reacting to Eke’s recent comments about their relationship.

    Eke had revealed during one of the episodes of the podcast ‘Frankly Speaking’ that she once dated someone she was taking care of.

    It didn’t end there as she denied dating Ike when one of the hosts Nedu assumed she was referring to their publicised relationship.In a swift response, Ike debunked the claims that a woman ever took care of him while they were dating.”I am responding to this, because it’s obvious that the producers of this podcast can’t pay for ads to promote the dead podcast, so as usual, they look for who to attack to indirectly promote their dead podcast, well congratulations you have Triggered perfectly, for over two years my image and reputation have constantly been dragged to the mud,” he wrote.

    “So it’s time to swim with pigs, I am making a bold statement that no lady whosoever has taken care of me. If anyone claims otherwise they should bring out receipts of one thing they have done, I have been quiet because I don’t also want to expose so many people including the show.””So I intentionally allowed myself to be ridiculed, but that era is over, people that can’t take care of their family coming out to chat shit about me,

    @nedu_wazobiafm and @prettymikeoflagos please be careful how involve yourself in things you have no idea of the background story.”

    “I respect both of you but I would not hesitate to call you guys out if I’m being disrespected to please your principals and the bosses that hired you. This should be the last time anyone would use me to count cheap scores.””I would start dropping receipts and exposing everyone if this continues, I have enough receipts to go around and everybody go collect, enough is enough!!!!! A word is enough for the wise!!!!!”Eke and Ike became an item after their time during the fourth season of Big Brother Naija.By 2020, it became obvious that there were cracks in the highly publicised relationship.By November of that year, Eke revealed that she was now married.She also advised fans to stop asking her about her ex-boyfriend.

  • Reactions : as Yemi Alade was denied visa to canada with fears that she won’t leave the country.

    Yemi Alade, the Nigerian singer, has been denied a visa to perform in Canada over fears she might not leave the country.

    Le Devoir, the French-language newspaper published in Montreal and distributed in Quebec and throughout Canada, reports that the songstress will be unable to perform at a festival’s final closing concert on Sunday.

    The 33-year-old Afropop star is said to be one of the headliners of the Festival international Nuits d’Afrique.

    Commenting on the development, Suzanne Rousseau, the festival co-founder, said the visa denial was due to “financial reasons, and for fears that the group wouldn’t leave Canada.”

    Rousseau also lamented that the process of applying for a visitor’s visa has been difficult for “at least five years.”“Finally, we got an answer saying the musicians were refused, saying they have to guarantee that they have enough financial means that will make them go back to their country,” she said.

    With Alade’s performance cancelled, Rousseau said the Nigerian will be replaced by Sampa The Great, the Zambian-born Australian-based female rapper.As of the time of this report, Alade, who has been vocal on her Instagram due to the release of her recent single ‘Begging’, is yet to speak about the visa issues in Canada.The songstress became popular after she put out ‘Johnny’, her 2014 hit single.Since then, the Afropop singer has gained prominence in the music industry, won multiple awards over the years, and embarked on world tours consecutively for her albums.In October last year, the musician also met with Prince William and Duchess Kate in the United Kingdom.

  • Woman who ‘murdered her millionaire husband, step children after she was caught sleeping with stepson and co-worker’ is captured in Mexico after three years on the run

    A stepmom has been captured after three years on the run on suspicion of murdering her millionaire husband, his son and daughter after she was removed from a will over an alleged affair with her stepson and a colleague. Berenice Alanís was apprehended Wednesday, July 20, at a hotel in the Mexican resort town of Acapulco.

    The capture was made possible by an alert guest, who had recognized her face from wanted posters, Telediario news network reported.The person recorded Alanís’ movements on a phone and alerted the police.

    According to Mail Online, authorities said Alanís reportedly hired the assassins who walked into the Mexico City gym owned by her husband Jacobo Quesada, 51, and executed him along with his son Jacobo Quesada Jr., 25, and daughter Patricia Quesada, 24, on April 5, 2019. Alanís was taken into custody several days after the triple murder but was released by a judge on bail, only to then flee.

    She was reportedly spotted in the cities of Querétaro, Hidalgo, Puebla, Guerrero, and Las Vegas while evading capture.Alanís was hired in 2003 by Jacobo Quesada as part of the cleaning crew at the gym before they started dating. He then abandoned his wife Patricia Arellano and married Alanís.

    It is unclear when they began dating and when he left his wife for Alanís. Jacobo Quesada and his children made her a part of the family and took her on vacations, including a visit to New York where they went shopping and attended a New York Yankees game.

    According to the report, he sought an end to the relationship in late 2018 after he had discovered Alanís was cheating on him and sleeping with Jacobo Quesada Jr. and a gym employee.The night of the murder, Jacobo Quesada was with his children inside an office at the gym when Alanís arrived to exercise.Alanís asked the front desk attendant for help with a workout routine. The killers then walked through the entrance and headed toward the office where they gunned down Quesada and his children.Investigators became suspicious of Alanís’ activities after she took his fleet of luxury vehicles, including two Corvettes, and changed the name of all the titles before selling them off in 2019.A judge approved a warrant for her arrest on December 20, 2019, after prosecutors showed evidence that Alanís had planned out the murder because she was cut out of the will and her husband’s $20 million fortune.

  • Just In : The Oluwo of Iwo said that “VOTE BUYING CAN’T STOP NOW

    Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwoland, has stated that vote buying cannot be stopped in Nigerian democracy because of the way politicians run the system.The monarch stated this on Saturday, July 16, shortly after casting his vote at Unit 1 Ward 2, in Iwo town Iwo Local Government.

    According to him, vote buying will only stop when government start doing what is right, and allow citizens to enjoy the dividends of democracy.

    “vote buying is a challenge to democracy. The populace does not have hope. They are getting what they can get. It is a bad situation. We do not know when to get out of it. The new breeds of politicians will help us to get out of it but people are hungry. They need food. Vote buying cannot stop now until we see real.

    “My domain is peaceful. I have told them nobody should stay home. They should show their voting strength. We want to see our strength. Nobody should stay home and watch television.” He said.

    In other news, popular Nollywood actor, Imeh Bishop Umoh otherwise known as Okon Lagos, has said he will sell his vote to any politician willing to pay the ‘right price’.

    He made this declaration in a video shared on his Instagram page while speaking on the 2023 general elections and the vote-buying antics of some politicians.According to Okon, such politicians pay citizens to vote for them once in four years and it’s only fair for him to collect enough money to sustain him until the next election season.The 40-year-old comic actor said he would willingly sell his vote at $1000/day, and went on to calculate the total amount he would collect for four years.He said there are 365 days in one year and when multiplied by four years, it gives 1,460 days. He then multiplied 1,460 days by his said price/day and it amounts to $1,460,000.The actor said he would offer the politician an exchange rate of N500 to a dollar and when the total amount is converted to naira, his selling price becomes N730 million.According to him, that should be enough to fend for himself and his family till the next election season when politicians will start canvassing for votes again.

  • VIDEO: ‘Don’t vote for them’ — Portable rants as politicians ‘seek refund’ of show money

    Portable, the controversial singer, has flared up on yet another public outburst over the situation of things in Nigeria.

    In a video that surfaced online on Friday night, the fast-rising musician ranted in Yoruba while cursing “anyone who votes for the politicians who put Nigeria in this condition”.Portable, who appeared to have filmed the footage at the Abuja airport, lamented that his flight to Lagos was delayed and that the excuse was no fuel to move the plane.He also claimed he is being asked to refund payment made to him for a show he was supposed to perform after the money had been spent.

    “I’ve suffered. The money I already spent. You should talk about paying another one. Are you kidding? Is the fault not with Nigeria as a country? A whole Abuja? No fuel inside the airplane. If you all are man enough, vote for the bad politicians,” he said.

    “They’ve conned your generation. You can’t con us the way you conned our grandparents. It should be us enslaving you all. Imagine [them] telling me to refund the money paid for the show.”It is not exactly clear if the refund Portable speaks of is for a stage performance not delivered.It is not also clear if his rant is directed toward his political engagements in Osun state.Portable earlier endorsed Gboyega Oyetola, governor of Osun state, to seek a second term in the ongoing election. He had flaunted wads of naira notes the governor had given him.Photos also surfaced last Thursday showing Portable performing at a road show campaign for Oyetola.Portable’s outburst comes as the latest in a series of controversies involving the singer.He had previously called out Davido, the Afropop star, for unfollowing him on social media.
